I had suspected DS who is breastfed might have been CMPI as he's always hard to burp, arches his back, has thick, stringy, but still mustard yellow poo, always strains to fart and poo and just generally acts unsettled.
So I cut out all dairy for a week and a half but nothing changed, his poos were the same and still a bit unsettled so I introduced dairy back in my diet and the first 4 days of this he was sleeping better than ever.
Lately he's back to squirmy and isn't sleeping as well.
He had a bit of a poo explosion today and it was mustardy yellow, thick, a bit bubbly and stringy and where it had exploded out into his skin it was so red.
I guess my question is - is it possible to be CMPI even without green poos? Is red skin after contact with poo normal for all babies, or is his red skin from perhaps acid in the poo? I have some photos which are below, so stop scrolling if you don't want to see them. I'm hoping someone can help...... Sorry for the TMI!
